To catch a flight from Delhi Airport, you will have to pay a higher price. The Airport Economic Regulatory Authority (AERA) has approved Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) to levy additional charge from 1 February.
How much will the extra charge
From February 1, you will have to pay an extra charge to catch domestic and international flights from Delhi. If you take a flight from Delhi airport to any other place from 1 February to 31 March 2021, then you will have to pay an additional Rs 65.98, pay tax separately. After this, this charge will be cut from April 1, 2021, this charge will be Rs 53 for FY 2021-22, Rs 52.56 for FY 2022-23 and Rs 51.97 for FY 2023-24.
Demand for charging by 2024
Although DIAL had demanded an extra charge of 200 and 300 rupees for domestic and international flights from Delhi Airport, according to sources, this demand has not been given due attention at the moment. Delhi Airport wants this charge to be implemented till 2024, but now the Airport Authority wants to take a decision on it only after 2022.
Damage caused by corona: DIAL
DIAL says that due to the corona epidemic, from April 2020 to March 2024, it is estimated that there will be a decrease of about Rs 3538 crore. Therefore, by April 2024, the financial assistance will be needed so that the functioning can run properly.
Set tariff keeping Corona in mind: DIAL
Earlier, DIAL had also appealed to the Ministry of Aviation to ask AERA to keep in mind the impact of declining revenue due to Corona epidemic while fixing airport tariffs. If this is not done, then there may be a shortage of money, which will cause problems in maintaining the functioning of the airport.
